I wouls suggest adding some shadows and highlights to really capture the shape of her face, particularly around her eyes. They only need to be subtle - You've done it on her lips, but the colours seem too dark/light. You may want to add eyelids as well.
When trying to draw a person, the eyes are the most important and most recognisable part of the face. You need to really get them right.
I'd also remove the line from around the lips - it looks odd.
It's a good start, but I'm sure you could do much better.
It is really nice work. Agree that the pink thing sticks out too much. The eyes are a little too "popping out" if that makes any sense--maybe needs shading to settle them down. I also agree that it doesn't identify the celebrity even though it is based on a photo of her--
There's a V2 of it. Yeah, This was my first vector style photo so I'm still trying to figure out the shading and layering of colors on the skin and still working on the details. I'll take all of the feedback in and try to make sure my next vector style photo is nicer then this one. Thanks for all the help .

Also, I think the dimensions of the first picture seem to work better. It has a nice up close impact, focusing more on her lips and eyes.
The second picture exposes more of her chin, and visually, it looks kinda off balanced.
I think changing the text color is okay.

Just my opinion, but I think one of the most valuable parts of any design schooling is the interaction and feedback one gets from fellow students and instructors. For that matter, I'll go so far as to...
